Send such missing messages on Signal, its feature is older than Whatsapp

According to the report by mobile app analytics firm Sensor Tower, instant messaging app Signal received 1.78 crore downloads between January 1 and January 5. On the other hand, WhatsApp’s number of downloads is declining.  This is happening due to the new privacy policy coming soon by WhatsApp.  A large number of users are leaving WhatsApp and creating an account on the Signal app.

If you also use the signal or are planning to do it, then we are telling you about its disappearing messages feature.  The function of this feature is to make the message disappear.  This feature has already come up in WhatsApp, but it has been given on the signal much earlier.  WhatsApp’s message disappears after 7 days, but on the signal it disappears according to the scheduled time.

The end of end encryption feature is available in the signal app, but to a large extent your privacy depends on the person receiving the message.  For this reason, the feature of dispensing messages was brought.  Through this, you can send photos, videos and GIF files in addition to text messages.  Users can choose any time from 5 seconds to 1 week.  This time starts after the receiver sees the message.

Tap on Disappearing messages.

Set the message timer between 5 seconds to 1 week and do OK.

Come back to chat now.  Here you will see an alert message that this feature has been enabled.

An icon of the timer will also appear on the messages sent through it.
